The Heart of Namibia
Windhoek is commonly described as a city with a ‘continental’ atmosphere. This can be ascribed to its architecture, historical buildings dating back to German colonial rule, also to its cuisine, culture, dress codes and educational institutions.

Pavement displays of African drums and woodcarvings from the north contrast with elegant shops offering sophisticated gemstones and Swakara garments.

The hillsides overlooking the city towards the west are three castles built from local stone as residences at the beginning of the 1900s. Windhoek has an active and lively community of art and crafts people.

Galleries where exhibitions are held, commercial galleries, Craft co-operatives , shopping complexes, a large number of curio shops and features of historical interest are contained within the city.
